Collaborative London-based quartet Jet-G, have released their haunting sophomore single ‘Give Me Air.’ Jet-G is the acronym for electronic producers Jolliffe, female vocalist ECKOES, and Modestep’s founding member Tony Terror and GENTRY.
The track combines the musical skills of all four artists, resulting in a combination of classical and experimental sounds. ECHOES vocals are definitely a highlight, set against deep, captivating instrumentals.
Starting off slowly with vocals and lyrics, the tail end of the track introduces production elements, bringing together the collaborative element that is Jet-G.
ECKOES explains the song’s lockdown origins: “We were in a small studio in London Fields during the covid lockdown. Rob (GENTRY) was playing about on the grand piano at the end of a writing session & we just started recording. The guys began to produce as they went & I could hear a melody & lyrics almost immediately. The songs were kind of accidental, but within a few hours, the bones of two singles had been recorded.”
